Real estate developer Dharmen Shah's offer to buy out the residents of Vishram Society - a formerly respectable, now crumbling apartment complex that abuts the infamous Dharavi slums - is more than generous.

Der weisse Tiger : Roman by Aravind Adiga( Book )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in German and English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
Balram Halwai ist ein ungewöhnlicher Ich-Erzähler: Diener, Philosoph, Unternehmer, Mörder. In diesem Roman erzählt er uns die schreckliche und zugleich faszinierende Geschichte seines Erfolges - der ihm keineswegs in die Wiege gelegt war. Balram - der "weisse Tiger" - kommt aus einem Dorf im Herzen Indiens. Seine düsteren Zukunftsaussichten hellen sich auf, als er, der klügste Junge im Dorf, als Fahrer für den reichsten Mann am Ort engagiert wird und mit ihm nach Delhi kommt. Hinter dem Steuer eines Honda City entdeckt Balram - und wir mit ihm - eine neue Welt. Balram sieht, wie seinesgleichen, die Diener, aber auch ihre reichen Herren mit ihrer Jagd nach Alkohol, Geld, Mädchen und Macht den Grossen Hühnerkäfig der indischen Gesellschaft in Gang halten. Durch Balrams Augen sehen wir das Indien der Kakerlaken und Call Center, der Prostituierten und Gläubigen, der alten Traditionen und der Internetcafes, der Wasserbüffel und des mysteriösen "weissen Tigers".

Eine Geschichte um Geld und Macht, Luxus und Entbehrung, ein breites Gemälde der Menschen in Bombay und nicht zuletzt das Porträt einer brodelnden Stadt - "Der letzte Mann im Turm" wirft einen tiefen Blick in die Herzen und Köpfe der Bewohner einer Mega-City - einfache Menschen, die an einem Ort ohne Grenzen an ihre Grenzen getrieben werden. Wen man in Bombay auch nach der "Vishram Society" fragen würde - Turm A der "Vishram Cooperative Wohnungsbaugesellschaft" -, jeder würde sagen, dass diese Wohnanlage in der Nähe des Flughafens und am Rande von Slums dennoch eine gute Adresse ist. Aber nicht nur Bombay hat sich in den letzten fünfzig Jahren verändert - und heisst jetzt Mumbai -, auch der Immobilienmarkt - überall in Mumbai wird abgerissen, Neues gebaut und viel frisches Geld ist im Umlauf. Als der Immobilientycoon Dharmen Shah den Bewohnern der Vishram Society das Angebot macht, sie rauszukaufen, damit er einen Luxusapartment-Komplex errichten kann, ist sein Angebot mehr als grosszügig. Aber nicht jeder ist bereit, auszuziehen und dafür viel Geld mitzunehmen, das Angebot gilt jedoch nur, wenn alle zustimmen! Die Anspannung steigt unter den Bewohnern, und einer, der pensionierte Lehrer Masterji, einst am meisten respektiert, ist nun das Hindernis für diesen Deal. Shah ist ein gefährlicher Gegner, aber auch alte Freunde können zu Feinden werden ... Aravind Adiga, geboren 1974 in Madras, wuchs zeitweise in Sydney, Australien, auf, studierte Englische Literatur an der Columbia University und am Magdalen College in Oxford. Er arbeitete als Korrespondent für die Zeitschrift Time und für die Financial Times. Er lebt in Mumbai, Indien. Sein erster Roman "Der weisse Tiger" (C.H.Beck 2008) gewann den Booker Prize und erschien in fast 40 Ländern
